There are many valuable features within the solution. The product is easy to customize. It’s also highly secure.Out-of-the-box the product has a lot of opportunity for configuration and sophisticated identity management capability.I like that it is easy to diagnose. It has a version of a virtual appliance so we can download it, run it, configure it, and it would take about 10 to 15 minutes to configure the cluster or so.Word mining and risk campaigns are the most valuable features of this solution.When comparing it to other products, you can set up CA IAM in a PoC very quickly to demonstrate its provisioning capabilities.It is easy to use, and does not requires an extensive programming or development background.

Cons
When the re-certification process is launched that makes Omada very slow. There are performance issues in the current version.The user interface should have a more flexible design, where you can change it to your requirement.

The information that is available for the Active Directory portal is segregated here and there.In terms of the identity and access management solution for on-premises environment, I think Microsoft needs to eliminate or minimize the number of workloads for the solution to run in on-premises environment.This product was only launched two or three years ago and it is still in the process of becoming stable.They have to improve the User Entity and Behavioral Analysis.Instead of using the connectors from the third-party companies, they should make the Microsoft templates available with this product. If Microsoft would increase the number of the box connectors that would be helpful to all the customers who use it daily.
